"Graphic and disturbing" image?!?

So obviously immigration has been on many people's minds again due to President Calderón of Mexico's expressed opinions about Arizona's new immigration law and due to the First Lady talking to a child of an illegal alien at a school. As part of the reporting of this issue, Yahoo published this article. In it they make reference to a "graphic and disturbing image" of Dora the Explorer that someone editorialized. (See below.)

When I saw it, I lol'd. I then showed it to a gay and then left-leaning coworker. Both rolled their eyes about this being "graphic and disturbing" and having seen much worse in other new's stories without benefit of the self-censorship for someone's sensibilities.

I obviously do not advocate violence against anyone just because. This picture won't become our computer desktop. (This is.)

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir

I was turned on to this by a clip from PJTV on find beauty online. What do you think? (The clip from PJTV is also worth watching.)
